Easily one of the most recognizable neighbourhoods in Edmonton, Old Strathcona has been a vital part of the community since the arrival of the railroad in 1891 and officially joined the city of Edmonton in 1912.  

  • Today Old Strathcona is renowned for slightly different reasons!  Centered on the well known “Whyte Ave” with boutique shops, amazing restaurants’, the world famous Fringe festival and even quiet spots for a coffee, Old Strathcona offers an exciting lifestyle choice.


  • With almost 65% of the residents under the age of forty, no one’s surprised that Old Strathcona rates a four out of five in Recreation and a five out of five in Lifestyle, on the Community Scores survey based in part on the vibrant theatre, music and art scenes.


  • An affordable $374,000 average listing price and an extremely healthy inventory makes for an incredible selection varying from walk-ups and condos, to investment opportunities to classic single family homes.  


  • Old Strathcona’s excellent transit services, major traffic connections and pedestrian friendly access to almost every amenity, coupled with proximity to the U of A and jobs across the river in downtown Edmonton, it’s become a very popular choice for younger working people.
